Why was LAFCO created?

The end of World War II saw California experiencing a tremendous population increase, which resulted in the sporadic formation of cities and special service districts. The results of this development boom became evident as more of California's agricultural land was converted to urban uses. Premature and unplanned development created inefficient, expensive systems of delivering public services using various small units of local government. The State Legislature reacted to this pressing problem in 1963 by creating a Local Agency Formation Commission, or "LAFCO" operating in each California county.
